Sedo just announced two mid 5-figures sales:
zaker.com 45,000 EUR
lossless.com 30,000 EUR
Zaker.com was sold by a company called ZAKER, C.B. from Spain. The buyer is using privacy whois and the nameservers have not yet been changed so we don’t know who the buyer is yet. The company was using the domain name since
2000, the year it was registered, for their website.
It seems that more and more businesses sell their valuable domain names when they don’t no longer need them (or a big offer comes along) instead of letting them expire.
The domain name lossless.com was registered in 1995 and it was sold by it’s Swedish owner. The buyer is not yet know but it could be German company Lossless Digital UG from lossless-digital.com that also owns lossless.net, lossless.org and lossless.info. Lossless.com is a domain that I wish owned. If you don’t know what it could be used for check here.
The domain has changed hands many times since 1995. At one point in 2006 the owner put it up for appraisal at NamePros.com. Here is a reply it got:
And if you find an interested end user, who knows, maybe up to mid high $XXX.
For a quick resale value no more than mid high $XX imo.
